Descrizione libro Frank Cass, London, 2002. Hardcover. Condizione libro: Very good. Condizione sovraccoperta: very good. First published in 2002 [stated]. Sewn binding. Cloth over boards. xiv, 226 p. A Note on the Text. Abbreviations. Illustrations. Bibliography. Index. Foreword by Richard J. Aldrich. The author was a member of the Advisory Board of the Oxford Companion to Espionage. He was also on the faculty at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia. From the 1930's to the 1950's a significant number of left-wing men and women in the United States, Britain, Europe, Australia and Canada were recruited to the Soviet intelligence services. These people were amateurs, rather than professional intelligence workers and the reason for their success is intriguing and has never been satisfactorily explained. Using recently released Soviet archives, this book seeks to explore the foundations for these successes in the deliberately concealed tradition of underground political activity which was part of the communist movement. This tradition, which became extremely useful to Soviet intelligence, also explains the origins of the "tradecraft" of espionage. The book seeks to contribute to the study of the causes of the early Cold War, by explaining how this underground tradition lead to espionage. This title shows that while allegations of disloyalty during the Cold War were often part of a witch-hunt, the Left and their liberal allies sometimes unwittingly had a number of skeletons in their closet.
